Passover Can Be Fun For Kids Too

By ilanawiles |

Easter can be a hard holiday for parents to compete with, what with the chocolate, the egg hunts, the larger-than-life bunnies and of course, the Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Passover was a holiday that I learned to appreciate as I got older. Once I wasn’t the youngest at the table and could pass singing the four questions on to my little sister.

For me, Passover was an incredibly long dinner with one big chance at a cash prize— the reward for finding the afikomen. At which point, I would have to negotiate with my Uncle and play serious hardball.

But I don’t remember doing any Passover related crafts or activities during the week long holiday.

Probably because my mother didn’t have the internet at her disposal to get any ideas.

My daughter is much luckier.

Here are eight ideas for fun activities you can do with your kids to celebrate Passover.

Bag of Plagues

One of the best parts of the sedar is the reading of the ten plagues. Make it even more fun for kids by assembling goodie bags with items to represent each of the plagues. Plus it will be something to keep them entertained throughout dinner.
